worth a visit. good collection of ceramic items from different styles, epochs and origins provides excellent overview into the history of ceramic art in Spain. the palace is an item of its own, also good with furniture and gives impression on how things were.

I don't know what else I can add to what others have said, it's one of the most wonderful places I have visited in a long time. It's free on Sunday, but I arrived with only an hour to spare so I had dash round. It's full of the most beautiful chandeliers and painted ceilings, furniture, clocks, ceramics, jewellery, all...

Three of us visited late one morning during las fallas. You will find many people outside just taking facade photos and moving on. Don't. Go inside for 3€ and enjoy a free guided tour in your language of choice. Not only is the home lovingly restored, the restoration team hunted throghout Europe to find as many pieces as possible that... More

The alabaster facade might leave you thinking the inside could not possibly be as impressive but don't skip this attraction.The quality of the building, ceramics exibits, furniture, and the level of preservation are outstanding.

In addition to the wide range of porcelains on display, mostly from the province of Valencia, stemming from early age to present days, the palace is a delight to the eyes, with a range of tastefully decorated rooms, more in the 18th century than 19th century style, when it was re-decorated. The staff there is a little stern and could... More

Very interesting guided tour. Really good value at 3 euro 50 each. Fabulously 'over the top' rooms. Much more than just a museum of ceramics.

A lovely palace in the heart of Valencia. The Marques was one of those very rich people who collected stuff and much of it is here. The real star is the building itself though, which is well worth a visit (and like most museums in Valencia, free on Sundays). There is plenty to see - from Cinderella-style coaches and sedan...

This palace houses the Ceramic Museum and unless you are a ceramics buff is a bit dull. The palace though, both inside and out is far from dull. The interiors are beautiful and give a great feel for life in the preceeding centuries. There is an interesting collection of carriages on the ground floor. Some days entry is free so... More
